Proposal Title: 

Phase 1 (2010): Tidal Marsh Bird Population and Habitat Assessment for SF Bay Under Future Climate Change Conditions

Science Delivery Phase (2013): Using scenario planning to support climate-smart asaptation for the South Bay Salt Pond Restoration Project: A case study for making science accessible to managers

Project Summary: 

This project assesses the potential effects of climate change on tidal marsh habitats and bird populations, identifies priority sites for tidal marsh conservation and restoration, and developes a web-based mapping tool for managers to interactively display and query results in the San Francisco Bay. Management actions that are robust or that fail under the climate change scenarios can be identified through the mapping tool.
